Land ownership in Liberia is tied to citizenship. Therefore, acquisition of public land by foreigners is possible through leasehold. Leases are ordinarily for 25-50 years, but exceptions are permitted by law. The ownership, leasing, and use of land are governed by both statutory and customary law.
There are basically three kinds of land in Liberia: public, private, and tribal (or communal). Verification of land titles is conducted at the National Archives.
The Land Commission, which was established in March 2010, is responsible for reforming land policy, laws, and programs, and will be developing Liberia's urban land policy. For additional information on the Land Commission, please click here.
